You are running a 120gb SSD. Of course your storage drives can be anything.

The OP implied using a WD Green as the OS drive (unless I'm completely mistaken).

That would be problematic, and the source of the "HDD debate". If you are just assuming that everyone has an SSD for their O/S, then sure, I guess I can see your "point".

Gotcha. I didn't see he was planning on running his OS from the HDD.

Did you use this promo code to take 15% off the RAM?
It expires tomorrow, I think.

No decent combos with the Phantoms. Looking back in hindsight I wish I would have gotten one.
Frank, Thanks for the links.. I am now in serious debate on this NZXT Black or stick with the HAF X... I was looking at the 912 Advanced.. but its only sold in Asia.. so down to these 2.

The price on this NZXT is really a pull

No problem. I would personally just go with the discounted NZXT. It's a full tower which means down the road you can put more stuff in it with issues.
